About The Kennedy Immigration Firm LLC

Our Mission

The Kennedy Immigration Firm LLC provides a wide range of employment and family based immigration and nationality services to corporate, business and individual clients. We represent corporate clientele from start-ups to publicly traded companies and are uniquely aware of the services and representation that they require. Our broad clientele is based throughout the United States.

Quality Legal Services

Our firm is one of the few in the United States which dedicates a significant portion of its practice to international adoptions and related issues. Immigration is an ever changing legal arena. Our office is cognizant of the requirement to be up to date with new laws and regulations, as well as government processing procedures. We meet this requirement through extensive interaction with government agencies, attendance at immigration meetings and seminars throughout the United States, as well as significant involvement with the American Immigration Lawyers Association. This commitment to the knowledge of current regulations and information enables us to offer our clientele innovative and strategic legal representation. We are familiar with the legal and procedural requirements of all government agencies throughout the nation.

Quality Customer Service

What distinguishes our law firm from many others is our excellent customer service. We are a “hands on” law firm and strive to give all of our clients immediate access to our attorneys and staff. Our goal is to provide our clients not only with top quality legal representation, but also with excellent customer service and competitive prices. In our effort to remain “hands on”, we work extensively through email, Internet, telephone and courier services. Our office will work directly with you, the client, to establish processing procedures that benefit you or your company, as well as expedite the process. For corporate clients, we routinely provide on-site legal representation and seminars.

Competitive Fees

Our fee structure is developed to provide you with reasonable costs for our services. We have adjusted our fee schedule so that if costs are not incurred you are not charged. Our permanent residency fees are amortized over a period of time. You authorize the legal services you require and are only charged for what is requested.
